notmovingpictures Episode 45: My Peruvian Vacation

This episode was recorded on September 30th, the last day of my Peruvian vacation. Not long after I returned home I had almost all of the podcast edited and planned on finishing it the next day and then uploading it. Except then my laptop died. Everything on it has been unavailable including all of my saved episodes, my music, pictures, documents, etc and quite realistically it all may be lost for good. Luckily I still had the file on my recorder and so I was able to use a computer and download the editing program and start over. Since I want to get this up I have decided not to do any editing on the content. Normally I will take out too many uhhhs or if I cough or sniffle because I feel it distracts from what was being said. Not this time though. What we have here is a conversation between myself and my brother-in-law Gary Rivera. Gary was preparing to emigrate to the U.S. and we talked about the differences in our countries as well as what I did on my vacation. Since this was recorded in Peru and is a great deal about Peru I decided to close the episode with some Peruvian metal. Enjoy.

New Zines: What She Said and Badly Drawn....On Purpose issue 2

This is way overdue but since my laptop died a lot of things have been left hanging and will more than likely continue to do so until I am able to get a new one. The likelihood of that happening soon doesn't look good so until this is resolved I'll just do what I can.



I've had two mini-zines ready and although I left a few in various places while on vacation in Peru and mailed them to certain friends it's high time I got rid of them so in the next few days I'll be taking them to the library and perhaps a book store or two to drop them off. If they happen to find themselves placed inside of books to be found at a later date at said locations well, it won't be the end of the world now will it? As well, I need to drop a few off at Holy Mountain now that they've moved to their temporary location.

For the first time ever I've submitted a short story to a zine but I'll leave it at that until I hear if it was accepted or not. If so then I'll gladly trumpet the info as well as buy a bunch of issues to keep for prosperity's sake and if not then I have a magazine in mind to submit to. If neither entity chooses to publish it then I'll just have to put it in the next issue of Exercising Demons. I'm extremely well behind in writing issue 3 but like I said, no laptop and that makes it hard to write. Don't ask me how I'm able to work on this post, I can't give away the details on my trickery.

Other than that, I went to see Black Sabbath so if I am able I'll put a few pictures up. I intend to see Henry Rollins later in the month so there might be a blog post all about that. There is this little thing next week where I'm turning......well let's just say another year older and leave it at that, shall we? I'm old and that's all that needs to be said about that.

Some Zine reviews For Zinenation.org

A few months back the fine folks at Zine Nation sent me four zines to review and so finally I have done them and they can now be viewed on their site here. In this case I'd like the traffic to go to their website so I will not put the reviews up on the blog. Indulge me a bit and go to their site. It's kind of the point you know?

As for revealing the zines that I reviewed I can at least let you know what they were. No harm in doing that. They were Uten Ord # 3, Exscind, Simple Steps To A Life Less Shitty and I Don't Know Hot To Help You.

There you have it. Go read my reviews and you can find out more info on the zines and while you're at it you can poke around their site and find reviews done by other people who are far better at it than I, as well as interviews with people in the zine world.

Gotta go, can't let the chicken burn and the rice is almost ready.

notmovingpictures Episode 045: Do You Really Know What Freedom Means?

Yet another solo episode. Patience, soon I will have episodes with co-hosts. Soon I tell you. This time I talk about dismantling my office, my to-do list for projects, etc. that need to get finished before I go on my vacation. Then it's on to the serious topic. Protests that occur by not standing for the national anthem and/or flag burning and the publics reaction. My take on this issue is unconventional. I've seen a lot in my time in the military and since. I bet you won't be able to guess what my point of view is. Listen and see.



Opening Music: Alloy - Live To See The Day
Closing Music: Freedom Club - Rather Be Blind

Ten For Tuesday Episode 102

This episode  is a bit all over the place. I think the music goes well together or else of course I wouldn't have put it together but there is some very different stuff here. Thanks to Victor Rice who sent me some very cool stuff all the way from Brazil. Much respect. Take it all in song by song and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Prophets Of Rage - Prophets Of Rage
Long Beach Dub Allstars - Listen To DJs

Ten For Tuesday is a podcast dedicated to playing the music I couldn't find anywhere else. The music I like varies from style to style, genre to genre and era to era. You will hear punk, ska, rock, Americana, metal, country, rockabilly and more from all over the world. It doesn't matter if it's a major label or indie as long as I like it then it gets played. The motto is Less Talk More Music which means you won't hear me waxing poetic for fifteen minutes between songs. At TFT its all about the music...and me of course.

My To Do List Is Getting Kind Of Long

My to do list is getting longer and longer as my impending vacation looms large. I've always been a very good procrastinator, damn near a champion at it as a matter of fact. Need proof? Well in college I would wait until about ten o'clock the night before I had to give a speech for class to start on it. I always got an A on those speeches I'll have you know. Here's the list so far in no particular order but it doesn't include family, house or work stuff, i.e. the-not-so-fun stuff:

Get two episodes of Ten For Tuesday ready
Get one or two episodes of notmovingpictures ready
Make issue two of Badly Drawn.....On Purpose zine
Make issue three of Exercising Demons zine
Make issue one of What She Said zine
Make issue one of Crap I Used To Draw zine
Write and post book review of The Folly of Loving Life by Monica Drake (long overdue)
Write and submit zine reviews for Zine Nation
Re-write short story Lonely Life (just a working title)
Work on t-shirt design ideas
Pack for my vacation
Finish other preparations for my vacation (lists of gifts to buy, etc)

Perhaps I just thrive on getting things done at the last minute. That's what I've done here. I could have gotten serious with these zines weeks ago but no, I don't do things that way. More than likely I'll get three of them done which is good since the Tulsa Zine Fest is the week after I get back from my vacation and I'd like to have it all done before that. Which ones though, that's the question.

The zine and book review won't take very long as I've been mulling them over in my head for some time now. The music for both episodes of Ten For Tuesday is almost ready and there's a loose plan for notmovingpictures. The short story re-write will have to wait until I get some more feedback from family and friends. After that, well, things will just have to fall into place now won't they? They always seem to whether I like it or not.
